85 Tasting Notes
I was not very impressed by this tea my first brew; too weak for my taste. So, I decided to brew it with 3tsp/16oz water, 1tsp rock sugar and found that this tea is quite pleasant.
It has that definite oolong feel to the tea, which I don’t really know how to describe since I am lacking the tea vocabulary to convey to others. However, if you love oolongs, it’s that taste that you just adore! At first sip, this tea is more fruity and in the finish the cinnamon seems to come out more. It is a nice balance of flavors, overall. I think this may be my new summer oolong while I put my Sweet Oolong Revolution on hold to enjoy during the winter.
This tea is pretty good! Has a fresh strawberry taste that is very refreshing. I am also picking up on that slight buttery-brown sugar taste. It’s definitely a nice undertone that comes out in the finish. Overall, it does not overpower the strawberry taste, but instead brings out the flavor nicely. Let’s just say it’s sweet and soothing enough to keep me working on my dissertation :)
Holy moly! If you love cinnamon, and I mean really LOVE, then this tea if for you. I, however, don’t even really enjoy Big Red gum. If you want a wake-up call with each sip, you’ll really love this tea. I found the cinnamon pretty overpowering and decided to give it to someone that was constantly eating hot tamales. It has a smooth, pure flavor though.
I have been searching for that special strawberry tea. I wanted something that tasted so purely like strawberries I could have sworn I was eating them. I even tried the strawberry pie honeybush which had glowing reviews, but it didn’t quite hit the spot (and I love all things strawberry and vanilla). This tea did it for me, finally! I needed no sweeteners for this tea, and it was so smooth, so pure, and so fresh tasting. Didn’t taste artificial whatsoever. They must have put strawberries from the garden of eden in this tea!
My holy grail of strawberry tea, found at last. Can I get a what-what?!
Magnificent. I am really tempted to say that this is my favorite tea I’ve ever had. I’m a big fan of oolongs, plus toasted/nutty/spicy flavors. Needless to say, this tea has it all for me. It’s got a wonderful balance of flavors, and with a hint of rock sugar it is perfectly sweet for my tastes. I especially love it with Sweet Oolong Revolution from Teavana as well.
I keep a huge a** tin of this at all times and frequently dedication mediations sessions in gratitude of this tea (I’m exaggerating of course…but I could conceivably dedicate a shrine to this tea). That’s okay if you think I’m crazy, because I am crazy…for this tea. :)
What the heck is up with this tea? It has been decently reviewed and I thought it would be a safe bet. However, despite its fruity flavor, it has this weird taste to it. I wouldn’t call it sour…maybe a cousin of sour. It’s just weird. I gave it to someone else since I couldn’t force myself to drink it anymore, and blending it just couldn’t get rid of the awful combination of flavors. Booo.
This tea is interesting. It definitely has that fruit factor, as well as another quality I can’t quite describe. The finish of the tea has strawberry undertones, as well as something special that is ineffable (this is a dramatic word but I don’t know what else to say!) This might just be me though. I think it’s worth a shot for fruit and oolong lovers, however I think they may have discontinued it…
